Images of "Indian Princess" Pocahontas in the Public Imagination

By

Pocahontas was credited by the early English colonists to the Tidewater region of Virginia with helping them survive in the critical early years. Her image as an "Indian Princess" who saved Captain John Smith has captured the imagination of many generations of Americans. Only one image of Pocahontas was created during her lifetime; the rest reflect the public image of Pocahontas rather than an accurate representation.
